Gluten-Free Cornbread

This cornbread is a deliciously moist and dense quickbread that goes with just about anything. We love it served alongside our favorite chili recipe or as a side dish with our Sunday roast.

Since it’s one of my daughter’s favorites, she would probably request it at every meal if she could 🙂 For a fun change, try making it into muffins for individual servings!

While this  easy recipe uses common pantry staples, it’s important to make sure that your corn meal is labeled gluten-free! Many companies that produce cornmeal also produce flour as well, so there is a high risk of cross-contamination.
